Archaeology Notes

NX98NE 13 c. 96 85.

There is the site of a stone circle a little to the SE of the buildings at Newlands. Although the circle was destroyed for building materials, some of the stones (or fragments) were rolled over a nearby causeway of field stones across a hollow in the ground.

The circle lies to the east of the road, (probably the road from the mill - NX 968 842)

M R Dobie 1959; T Johnston 1825-7

Mr Duncan, the owner of Newlands, who knew of the reports above, has never been able to locate the site of the circle. No remains were found during field investigation, nor could the hollow mentioned above be identified.

Visited by OS (RDL) 25 June 1964
